The teenager grew into a young man searching for The Present on his own. He read books, articles and magazines but nothing had any mention of The Present. Tired, discouraged and disappointed, the young man gave up his search. When the young man could not balance his life!!! At work, he hardly got jobs done. He was always preoccupied with so many other things the meetings, other projects to be done, schedules.

After such frustration, the young man became a little more tired and disappointed after each working day. His personal life wasn't doing any better either.

His break-up with a girlfriend caused him to worry if he would ever find a true love. The loose ends, unrealized dreams and his desperation resited the long lost desire for The Present. He then decided to see the old man, again.

Everyone should learn to look for what is right at a bad situation and then eventually build on it rather that get distracted by the wrongs in it.

In the mountain, the young man recalled what the wise old man had told him about The Present: It is a gift that you give to yourself. You'd known it best when you were younger.

You'd simply forgotten it. When you are fully engaged in what you are doing your mind doesn't wander and you are happy. You are intent only on what is happening at that moment. When the young man went back to the cabin, he noticed and gazed at the impressive fireplace crafted and perfected out of a mason's dedication and focus.

I get it!!! The Present is not the past and is not the future. The Present is the Present moment. The Present is Now! Being in The Present means focusing on what is happening right now!

It means appreciating the gifts what you are offered every day.

Even in the most difficult situations, when you focus on what is right at the present moment, it makes you happier, and gives you the needed energy and confidence to deal with what is wrong. Being in The Present means focusing on what is, right now and what is right, now, whatever the situation is.

Being in the present means turning out distractions, and paying attention to what is important, now. You can create your own present by what you give your attention to. When the young man concentrated at applying at work the things he learned from the old man regarding The Present.

At work, He began solving the problems one by one, focused on the projects he had at hand at that particular moment, and learned to listen attentively to his colleagues. He became a lot more effective and happier. His personal life also seemed to flourish.

He got himself a wonderful woman and started to develop a great relationship with her. However, one day, when he taught he knew how it is to be in The Present, a problem at work arose.

He deliberately carried the load that has to be done with a partner, alone. He missed the deadline and the boss expressed his disappointment. The young man failed.

He wondered what the old man would do at that particular moment. It is hard to let go of the Past if you have not learned from the Past. As soon as you learn and let Go, you improve the Present. The young man approached the old man again to discuss the failure he had at work. Apparently, it occurred that the young man is still haunted by the failures of his past.

According to the old man, it is helpful still to look at The Past while you are in The Present so just to improve it. To do such, the young man noted: Look at what happened from the past. Learn something valuable from it. Use what you learn to improve The Present. Anytime you are unhappy in the Present or feeling unsuccessful, it is time to learn from the Past and plan for the Future. You cannot change the Past, but you can learn from it.

When the same situation arises, you can do things differently and enjoy a more successful Present. The young man politely confronted the partner he had with the project that recently failed. He learned to deal better with people. He finally got promoted. His promotion, however, was faced with increasing demands. He had not developed a daily schedule.

Projects then started to spun out of his control. Discouraged and uncertain of what to do next, the young man got back to his old friend. The idea of the present tells that is not wise to be in the future, however, there is nothing bad with planning for it. As the old man had put it: No one can predict or control the future. However, the more you plan for what you want to see happen, the less anxious you are in The Present, and the more the Future is known to you.

To plan, the young man took note of the following guides: Picture what a wonderful future would be like. Create a realistic plan to make it happen. Put your plan into action in the present. Take one leg out and the tripod topples over. Keeping the balance among the three will help you deal better with any thing that comes along.
